HelpSystems is updating the names of our cybersecurity software, including the Powertech product line. Don’t worry—the functionality of your products won’t change.

See the new names here > New, Clearer Names for HelpSystems Security Software.


*Switch authority changes the job’s current user authority within the server job until that job is disconnected. This authority allows a rule that can increase or decrease a user’s authority. It can be used for *ALL Functions for a server or for a specific function, depending on the need.

If a user does not have object rights to an object, you may choose to switch them to a profile that does have rights to the object.

You may also choose to downgrade a user’s authority.

To create the switch rule, for Authority choose *SWITCH, then specify the ‘Switch to’ profile.

See Switch Profile in the Exit Point Manager Administrator’s Guide for more information.
